Carly Pearce Reflects on ‘Mind-Blowing Year’

Carly Pearce made waves in 2021.

Becoming one of the biggest names in country music, the 31-year-old singer reflected on her career-year in 2021 during “CBS Mornings,” from being named Female Vocalist of the Year during the Country Music Association Awards and winning two additional CMA awards for “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” her duet with Lee Brice, to having her album 29: Written in Stone named one of 2021’s top albums by Rolling Stone.

Pearce said “I am the most happiest now,” noting country music helped her following her divorce in 2020 from Michael Ray.

“I turned to writing music in a time where I didn’t know what else to do,” she said. “Country music has always been the thing that made me feel the most understood and during that time of my life I wrote this album in real-time and it’s the album that I feel like has really made people see me as a human being and see that we all go through things.”

Pearce will resume touring on an extension of her 29 Tour beginning Mar. 10 in Chattanooga, Tenn.
